Can an administrator disable Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) for a Centrify tenant?


The Centrify connector provides a web server feature that allows web browsers to connect to the Centrify portal using Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). For clients to complete login using SSO, both the web browser and Centrify connector must be enabled for IWA.

Administrators can choose to disable the Centrify connector web server to turn off Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). This change would be required on each connector where IWA should be disabled.
  1. Log in to the Centrify Admin Portal via
  2. Select the Settings tab then navigate to Network > Centrify Connectors. 
  3. Right-click the connector and select Modify.
  4. Under "IWA Service", uncheck "Enable Web Server"
